Hello from the new Australian Children's Laureate for 2020–2021

My name is Ursula Dubosarsky. I’m a writer. I’ve written a lot of books for children and young adults.

​The Australian Children’s Laureate is a person who is lucky enough to be chosen to travel around Australia – and even the world! – talking to children and adults about my favourite things on earth. Can you guess what?

BOOKS! I love READING books. I love WRITING books. And I also love every place where you find books, especially LIBRARIES.

​So wherever I go as the Australian Children’s Laureate for the next two years, I am going to be talking about BOOKS, READING and LIBRARIES.


On this website, every month I’ll share a writing idea with you that I really enjoy and that I hope you will too.
